The pace of the digital revolution has a dark side. Vintage computers become rarer and harder to maintain every day. It is a sad fact that many folks will never get the chance to see a vintage computer, let alone interact with one. Luckily, the same digital technology allows us to re-create a lot of that experience exactly, through emulation.
With some programming background, access to the right information, and a lot of spare time, emulating old computers has never been easier. This presentation will be an introduction to emulation and a "how-to" guide for creating emulators including resource gathering, nostalgia, development choices, technical/legal issues and the pitfalls that can arise.
